PollymissouriAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5brainy legal thrillerJuly 5, 2018PollymissouriAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Deadly Proof by Rachel Dylan is the first in the Atlanta Justice series.
This series focuses on three female lawyer friends and their cases.
Kate Sullivan is an attorney tasked with finding justice for the mother of a cancer patient against a large pharmaceutical company MPC. Kate hires a private investigator, Landon James, to help with the case.
This is a fascinating behind the scenes look at what goes on during preparation for a trial. Rachel has the experience to make this setting very understandable and interesting. This was a very well conceived plot. It was thought provoking but still had some tense moments. The romance understandably proceeded with caution. Rachel presented the main characters faith journey naturally.
Looking forward to reading the rest of the series. I like a brainy book!

debsMaineAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Deadly Proof ~ Rachel DylanJanuary 16, 2018debsMaineAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4When Kate Sullivan takes on a case against the big pharmaceutical company in regards to a cover up of a drug they produce, the drama begins. Kate hires private detective Landon James, former Army Ranger to help investigate the case, leading to more of a target towards Kate. The plot has a few twist and turns, however, if you read alot of suspense and mystery you might be able to figure out what is going to happen.....
This is book one of the series and is a good subject to cover in today's world. I enjoyed the read as I like drama and mystery reads. It does keep you reading, however, not as suspenseful if you are used to a John Grisham read, but still a good read.

JeaniePhoenix, AZAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Top-notch Christian Legal Thriller!January 13, 2018JeaniePhoenix, AZAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Five stars aren't enough to show how exciting Rachel Dylan's new legal thriller is! This is much more exciting than mainstream fiction offers as the protagonist is a Christian with ethics one is hard-pressed to find in today's business world. The writing style, the breathtaking suspense, and characters whose vivid honesty is refreshing and makes the novel even more appealing.
Kate Sullivan is a partner at the prosecutorial law firm she joined after three years of working as a defense attorney. She believes she is doing what she was meant to, defending the rights of those who don't otherwise have a voice. She has been named as lead counsel for a huge, multi-firm lawsuit against "MPC Mason Pharmaceutical Corporation with regards to its migraine drug, Celix, considered the cause for cancerous brain tumors that killed thousands while many more are suffering. It is believed that the pharmaceutical company knew about the deadly side effect before it was released.
Ethan Black is a defense attorney who went to law school with Kate. He recently acquired MPCs account for the firm he is a partner at and is their attorney for the case. These two friends are now pitted against each other in a lawsuit that is going to call on everything within them to win. Kate is a Christian, and chooses to be honest and upright in her dealings. Not just because she doesn't want to get into trouble, but because it is who she is.
When Kate meets Ellie Proctor, a senior Research and Development scientist at MPC, the woman is nervous. Very nervous, very paranoid that if she were seen with Kate that the consequences could be dire. She suggests that Kate request copies of testing documents not only for Celix but other drugs by MPC. Two days later, hours before Kate is scheduled to meet her on neutral ground, Ellie is killed in the parking garage of MPC, and the security tapes indicate a probable professional hit. Not a robbery gone bad, but a hit. Thus, Kate prepares for the trial of her life.
Kate is the kind of hero I appreciate. She is intelligent, kind, wise, and hard-working. She is a woman of faith, yet one who has a secret from even her closest friends, one that I empathize with. This reader really wants to appreciate Ethan, as well, but can't quite get there, especially as the trial prep continues. The PI Kate hires for help on the case, Landon James, is in some ways a mystery man. When it comes to business, however, he goes above and beyond searching out leads and people, including bringing in security experts for her protection.
The plot could be taken from today's headlines. It is written with skill, weaving in legal definitions and proceedings that readers may not be familiar with. Twists in the novel altered who looked guilty time and again, and this reader began to feel bad for Eric, as lead defense attorney. I did guess what MPC was trying to accomplish, but didn't know who the real bad guy/ gal might be - and it was a complete surprise who was - and wasn't - involved! I highly recommend this novel to those who enjoy suspense and legal thrillers with a Christian worldview, or even those who are seeking a "clean read" with a minimal violence.
From a grateful heart: I won a copy of this novel by the author with no obligation to provide a review. This is my honest review.
BernCaliforniaAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Suspenseful but cleanDecember 30, 2017BernCaliforniaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 4It's a new secret that I love to read and I enjoy reading suspenseful thrillers. What a don't like so much is a whole lot of foul language and unnecessary innuendo. So I looked forward to reading Rachel Dylan's first book in her Atlanta Justice series, Deadly Proof.
Kate Sullivan is moving up and was chosen to be lead counsel in a case against a large pharmaceutical company coverup. She has a heart of gold and integrity that longs to achieve justice for those that have been wronged. However, her sense of right and wrong is really put to the test when she realizes the lengths that the company will go to achieve their success.
As she learns more about her case, Kate's life is put into jeopardy and Landon James enters the picture to handle her security. As the case becomes more dangerous, Landon and Kate realize that their friendship is growing deeper as they spend more and more time together.
There were some portions of the book that were a bit predictable, but I again, I appreciated the clean entertainment, the suspense, and the bit of romance.
